I'm running 1265 fps. With Gen II mags it runs everything. 147 gr (1.167 COL) at 800 fps also.

Finally received my 4.5" MPX K handguard yesterday! Luckily it came pretty quickly...only had to wait 439 days from when I placed the order. Big Grin

I have a 4" barrel, cut and rethreaded by ADCO in January 2016, and TROS USA 3-Lug. I use a SilencerCo Octane 45 HD with Griffin 3-lug connection. I picked up an extra MPX front sight for the 4.5" handguard last year, so I can quickly swap between the two setups. The 4.5" handguard also has the Sig foregrip/hand stop installed. All I can say is WOW is the MPX tiny with the 4.5" handguard and a 20rd mag. Pictures just don't do it justice. Can't wait to get it out to the range!

Here is my MPX with the 4.5" handguard vs 8" handguard;






And the 4.5" vs 8" w/suppressor;

Sweet! I just got my K handguard too. This gun fits PERFECT in my Crye AVS 1000 pack I bought just for this setup! The cool thing about the pack is you can put a armor plate in it too.

Very nice! I like that pack, fits that setup perfectly.

I also had the folding stock in the safe, never preferred it much with the 8" setup w/suppressor. So it mostly sat, swapped it out here and there. However, man does it make the K configuration TINY. When it's folded, it's just so compact.

Wow, with the folder vs the telescopic that's got to take another 2-3" off OAL? I might have to look into that setup too.

I'm still not convinced the plastic Sig vertical grip is durable and that might be the first thing I have to switch out.

That front grip is such garbage.
I bought one - and was VERY disappointed in pretty much everything about it.
It's made of flimsy plastic - not a nice sturdy polymer.
It's too damn short - I end up with 2 fingers hanging off the bottom.

Great looking setups guys, such a compact little gun with the 4" barrel.

I heard the Sig grip was cheap too so ended up trying to the BCM KAG hand stop and so far I really like it.



I am also currently trying out the KM side folder since it saves 2-3" of OAL compared with the telescoping stock. I found that mine fits perfectly in the Hazard 4 Rocket pack with the side folder. With the telescoping stock it was too long. This Hazard 4 seems like a great pack for the MPX if you don't mind the tacticool look.









I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.

Yeah, looks like the folder comes in at 13" OAL, and the collapsible is just over 16.25" OAL. Like I mentioned, with the bigger MPX setup I preferred the collapsible...but the folder on the K is something else! Big Grin

I agree with you and creslin about the Sig vertical grip, not super impressed with it. I like the form factor of it with the small setup, but it sure doesn't feel all that solid. Not a lot of room on this small rail though, that will likely narrow down the options for a replacement if you're looking to install and hand stop and vertical grip.

Brett B:
Thanks! You've got a nice looking setup as well. I recently picked up the BCM KAG for my 8" .300 blk SBR, I really like it. Minimal, solid, and great design.

Had a chance to function test at the indoor range, only had time for 50 rounds but it was smooth as silk and seems pretty damn accurate as well.

Can't wait to get a brace on it and get it sighted in proper.

Took mine out of the the safe and discovered that the charging handle was broken on the left side. 15 minute phone call during peak hours to customer service resolved that issue and I'll have the next part in a week. Little bother that it broke with under 2k rounds but I'll take a free replacement. Tried without success to get some extra spare parts but got a promise that if my firing pin spring breaks that they'll send me a whole new bolt carried assembly under warranty. Feels good that they'll back defects but I don't want to be out of service for a week or two when something goes.

I put about 150 rounds through it with my youngest daughter today. Very soft shooting and accurate, but definitely a pain in the ass to clean. Much more work than my scorpion was. Cool weapon though, I'm very happy with it.

Someone locally was selling a 4" hand guard. gen 1. I picked it up. Now to decide whether or not to chop and thread the barrel or buy a replacement.

I saw these "In Lead We Trust" guys online, and wondered if anyone has had any dealings with them and their products? They have 4 gen 2 MPX 4" barrel&gas block set ups "in-stock" right now and it's tempting as hell. although, I heard that perhaps the SIG ones are available now, too?

I ordered one of their gen 1 barrels with gas block two months ago. There have been some delays, but Rob has been straight up in communicating those. I expect it to ship in the next week or two.

Here is a review of their gen 2 barrel, before they started making them with the gas block included.

I received a call from SIG customer service. They were trying to confirm some billing information. The item in question....... Factory sig 4in barrel. I am pretty excited minus the cost of the barrel.

Man, that short package is BADASS! I couldn't have waited 400+ days for anything so kudos to you for your persistence and determination. It sure paid off. I saw one similar to yours painted or hydro dipped with Flecktern camo pattern that really looked me. Nice job.

Just saw this on another forum, looks like a great alternative to the plastic Sig Foregrip/Handstop.
